It’s Time for a Removal if You See These  

Signs Your Home Needs Tree Removal

Like other plants, trees are living organisms, meaning they’ll eventually die. Proper tree removal of dying trees is needed, not only for the overall health of your property but also for the safety of your family. Dying, unstable, or sickly trees are a serious environmental and safety hazard. If their instability becomes worse, then an unhealthy tree can fall into your property or other people’s property. Even if a tree isn’t completely dead, a weak tree can easily be damaged by a storm. Below are the signs that it’s time to invest in tree removal for the safety of your family, property, and other people’s homes.


Trees are sturdy; they can withstand exposure to storms but only to a certain extent. If you notice that your trees have been badly hit after a storm, then chances are it’s time to have them trimmed or removed. Of course, only a certified arborist or professional tree care contractor can examine the overall well-being of your trees. However, if chances are slim that your trees will be able to recover after being damaged, it’ll only be more dangerous to keep them!


Trees changing their structure and form should be taken as another sign that calls for its removal. It’s also best to take note if your tree is leaning gradually to one side. If you ignore a branch or limb that’s leaning gradually towards the main entrance of your home, driveway, or backyard, then that will cause major and unexpected damage. Often, you can tell if your trees will start to lean on one side just by checking the condition of the trunk. If this happens, it’s best to hire a tree removal company immediately.

Storm damage

It’s common for people to become attached to the trees on their property. Because of that, it can be difficult to let a tree go, even if it’s obvious it has recently sustained storm damage, which is common if your tree is coming up at the roots, is missing branches, or has started to look less sturdy after a recent storm. If these happen, it’s time to let a tree care contractor inspect your property. If you want to keep your trees, your arborist will do anything possible to save it, but removal is often the best course of action, especially after major storm damage.
